The Hill has reached out to the Trump campaign and Fox News for comment.
The boast follows two tweets by Trump lamenting the fact that the poll had him losing to Biden, whom he referred to as "Sleepy Joe."
He also wrote that Fox polls "have always been terrible to me."
.@FoxNews is at it again. So different from what they used to be during the 2016 Primaries, & before - Proud Warriors! Now new Fox Polls, which have always been terrible to me (they had me losing BIG to Crooked Hillary), have me down to Sleepy Joe. Even considering.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2019

Biden has consistently polled as the front-runner among the more than two dozen people running for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination.
Fox News anchor Julie Banderas also defended the poll as the public's opinion in response to Trump's criticism.
That is incorrect. FOX News Opinion Polls are the public’s opinion not of @foxnews Interviews are conducted among a random national sample of 1,004 registered voters. 217 Landline and 787 cellphone numbers were randomly selected for inclusion in the survey. https://t.co/ndjLJqIPfN— Julie Banderas (@JulieBanderas) July 26, 2019
